Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.
Saint Patrick (via pureblyss)
Now that I have met you,
nothing that has ever mattered before
There are not enough beautiful things in this world to distract me from you.
Fear is the Enemy
Fear and doubt suck strength from one’s body like a leech unseen.
Strength comes from hope.
Hope from belief.
Belief from conviction.
Conviction from The Lord.
Nothing that comes from The Lord can be taken from you.
Only given away.
Entertaining fear and doubt on a banquet of your God-given gift of strength (because no man or woman has strength in themselves), feeds them like blood feeds a leech.
What you feed, will grow, and if you are what you eat… Entertaining fear and doubt on a diet of strength can only make them
"He gives power to the faint, to him who has no might, He increases strength."
- Isaiah 40:29
"But they that Wait upon The Lord, He shall renew their strength."
- Isaiah 40:31a
"Fear not, for I AM with you;
Be not dismayed, for I AM your God;
I will Strengthen you,
I will Help you,
I will Uphold you with My Righteous right hand.”
- Isaiah 41:10
[The promises of God strengthens those who wait upon The Lord.]
We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield;
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.
But they that Wait upon The Lord.
Letter from a professor:
"Do you know how eagles fly? They are too heavy to fly by just flapping their wings like other birds. Instead, they catch thermal updrafts and so they circle around as the warm air carries them higher and higher into the air. Then, after they get high enough, they leave the thermal updraft and soar…gliding without flapping their wings at all. Because of that, they can fly a huge distance without ever flapping their wings once. Eagles, strong as they are, cannot fly in their own strength. They must be carried."
"…they shall mount up on wings like eagles…"
| Isaiah 40:31 |
"Keep walking lightly…"
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:5 (via k-cady)
